Based on "Tanjong Rhu" by Min Fong Ho the character that I like is Mr. Li.
The character that I liked, Mr. Li, is a 63 year old, rich shipyard owner who has lost his mother. Mr. Li also likes to count the ships at the harbour. Mr. Li is a caring man, he bought binoculars for his mother so that she can see faraway things better. He also advises his daughter, Ying, to listen to his mother as she prays saying "She have eaten more salt than you have eaten rice."The last but not the least, Mr. Li loves his mother and scolds his daugther, Ying for being rough with his mother. This is why I liked Mr. Li, who loved and cared for his family. And also tried to be a good son to his mother even to the very end.
I hope will help you
